Popup Alert Announcements

Popup Alert Announcements

This session, intended for intermediate users, will introduce you to using articles to create your announcements and will demonstrate best practice in what the announcements could display. You will also learn what makes the announcements appear in a pop-up panel and what it is that controls where and when it is displayed. The session therefore includes:

  • Creating a new announcement article and  ensuring the correct category is used
  • Alternative method that bypasses articles
  • Adding a Logo and text with styling to make it look good
  • Adding Links and / or files as needed
  • Using the Auto OnPageLoad Popup module to display the announcement
  • Setting the date and time when the announcement should be switched on and off
  • Defining the page to show the announcement on
  • Setting the popup to appear everytime or more finely tuned
    • This covers the concept of cookies and timers
  • Defining the source of the announcement (the article) or using other sources
  • Setting up the size and colouring of the display popup box
  • Testing the pop-up
  • Choosing a different source for the popup
  • Quick ways to disable the popup
